string source functionthat reads its
value string source, and returns the text of that data converted from a Big5 encoding to a UTF-8 encoding. That is, the provided data is in Big5, but the program sees UTF-8.
string sink functionthat accepts UTF-8 encoded data and writes that data to its
value string sinkargument, converted from a UTF-8 encoding to a Big5 encoding. That is, the program writes UTF-8, but the provided output receives Big5.

The only kinds of errors that can occur are in conversion: finding a character that does not have a conversion
in the other character set. In this case, the converted value use is
0x7F) in the
